Muhibija Buljubasic, 56, poses for photo with cutlery and a Samsung Galaxy S4 phone on his body and head in Srebrenik, February 23, 2014. Buljubasic discovered five years ago that he had the unusual ability to attach items to his body by radiating a special energy. Without making any special preparation, he was able to hold on to spoons, forks, knives and other kitchen appliances, as well as non-metal objects like remote controls and cell phones.

Recently came across the TOP image. It is an image of all 128 possible states of a “seven segment” display. It struck me as a fascinating example of the kind of thing I’ve called paradigmatic horror before. This example isn’t quite so monstrous, but the second image shows exactly how weird and random are the numerals we recognize and use. They’re arranged seemingly at random, all out of order, and the vast majority of the possibilities are all but meaningless. Every digital clock you encounter contains this multiplicity.
